Abstract : The initial design and development of an 8086 multiprogramming operating system for use at the Air Force Institute of Technology (AFIT) was begun with a detail design of the CPU Scheduler being completed. Also, the top-level system specification was defined based on the needs of the Digital Engineering Laboratory at AFIT. Structured Analysis and Design techniques were used to produce a structured specification for the CPU Scheduler. Transform and Transactional Analysis methods were then applied to the specifications to produce a detailed design of the scheduler in the form of structured charts and module (interface) specifications.
